I used Skin Biology's CP serums for two years straight, working my way up to the strongest serum they make. The results I got were minimal and not worth the money or effort. I will stick with Vit. C and retinol products which give me results.

I used this product several years ago, and I don't know why on earth I didn't reorder it. I reordered the serum about two months ago. Copper peptides crossed my mind again because I was considering a very expensive eye cream, and copper peptides were touted in the advertising copy. For $29, I am certainly glad I opted for the SkinBiology product. My skin is as smooth as a baby's butt, and I feel it has improved my skin tone, too. I love it and will reorder again when this bottle is empty.

I bought the CP serum + Exfol Serum pack from dianayvone. I've been using it on alternate days and only at night becos I'm afraid of getting the sagging skin from overuse. Also the CP serum is a bit sticky so I don't want to put anything over it like my day makeup.
At first it didnt seem like it was doing anything, but after several weeks I really think my skin looks better.
Its smoother, firmer, more taut, and a bit glow-y. I won't use it everyday though, I'm quite happy with my alternate days regimen.
I also like the very reasonable price and the simple packaging. I would rather have a product that works in a simple, functional packaging than a fancy-looking bottle in a glitzy box that would cost a lot more. I prefer substance over show, anytime.

Got a sample of this from Diana Yvonne. This stuff is POTENT and unfortunately, does not seem to agree with my skin. I used a very diluted mixture - 1 drop of the serum with at least 10 drops of thermal water. Followed it with my usual Dremu oil. After just 2 applications as above, I started having some surface breakouts, some old scars resurfaced, and I developed a rash on my cheeks/jaw line, which I had to curb with a topical steroid and oral antihistamine. This stuff just seems too strong for my very very sensitive skin. One thing I really hated was the sickeningly sweet fragrance. I'm going back to Neova to see if that'll work out for me.

My husband and I have been using CP Serum for 2 months. I HAD very oily skin, and he very dry wrinkled skin. I tolerate the CP Serum fine, and can step up to Super CP. He is inconsistent with his skin care, and excessively dry skin gets blotchy. SO he needs to apply EMU oil FIRST, then apply CP Serum. He may also need to dillute the serum with water if too strong. IT seems to be preventing NEW lines and wrinkles on his skin. In order for him to see real results dimisnishing the wrinkles he already has, he needs to EXFOLIATE more, with Glycolic and Lactic acids over 30% to really get the bang for the buck with this product. I have been going an getting facials with 30% glycolics, and applyiing 2% BHA or 2/4% BHA/AHA acids on my skin daily 30 min BEFORE the copper peptides. I think this is critical for this product to work. This is designed to rebuild after exfoliation. It also calms down after laser resurfacing, and microdermabrasion, in addition to acid. Even reported to help heal burns from TCA peels gone bad.
People are saying my skin looks amazing. My scars from acne are almost gone, and I feel this is a critical part of my healthcare regieme. Like anything else, you must understand how to use the copper peptides. For dry skin/wrinkes, my husband may need to use the CP CREAM instead of this. Additionally, for his eyes, he will also need to apply low level acids to properly remodel that area as well.
Regarding packaging - I would recommend putting the product into a glass dropper bottle to more acurately control the amount you use. Skin Biology recommends 3-4 drops of product to start. The cap is a flip top and its quite easy to squeeze out more than a dime's worth. A little definately goes a long way. So, even though the product may seem expensive, you need literally so little, I felt the price was moderate.

This is a great product that helps with not only those fine lines around your eyes, but when used all over the face really helps to brighten it! I have been using this in conjuction with the exfol serum for over a month and could not be happier!

I've been using this product for almost a year. I'm still trying to figure out what routine works best for me. I have experienced the uglies, but then again, I have experienced beautiful glowing skin. When I think my skin looks worse, I pull back from using it, but when it looks good, it looks great! It looks firmer, lines look diminished, it gives a youthful glow, and my acne scars look nonexistent. That is the reason I continue to use this!

I had high hopes for this product when I started using it 3 months ago by following the correct routine. I kidded myself it was working but it wasn't. I broke out with cyst like pimples at times which left red marks and it did nothing for my slight sun damage around my nose and cheeks. It went on sticky and stayed sticky. It didn't close my pores and I was left with flaky dry skin. Never again will I use a Skin Biology product.

This is another very effective product by Skin Biology. It made my skin smooth, soft and faded some dark spots that I'd had for a long time. It has an almost liquid consistancy and feels very light on the skin. The only negative is that is has a strong odor (which fades after a few minutes) and that the packaging could be prettier. Otherwise, highly recommended.

This made my eyes look HORRIBLE for about a year. They got better but in the meantime I panicked.
Used just a few times. Waaaaaay too strong for me. Use with caution.

I am very happy with the results I've gotten with this product. After using it for about a week, twice a day, my facial skin feels tighter and smoother and my pores look smaller. Also, my skin tends toward ruddiness but this procuct has really helped tone that down.
I should warn, though, that some people's skin just won't tolerate this product very well. I have exceptionally hardy skin (I do a 40% glcolic peel every two weeks so that should give you some idea how hardy) so I'm very happy with it.
One more thing, the smell is not very pleasant but it doesn't last long anyway.

This really prevents and heals fresh acne marks for me, even better than l-ascorbic acid and Retin-A. Using this alone is effective at fading a fresh wound/mark, plus it completely prevents pitted holes. I don't have wrinkles so I'm not sure if it helps with lines.

I've been convinced by copper peptides. I was hoping to get rid of some keratosis and acne scars as at 28, I luckily had no wrinkles yet. About a month and a half later of (very, very sparingly) using this product, I am just floored by the results. I still have keratosis and acne scars are lightening, but I don't expect those to go away so quickly. What amazed me was that my skin, which I thought was already pretty good, had improved remarkably. It was less slack, and my jaw line has tightened!
It's hard to describe, but my skin just feels better, like it's more resilient and healthier. And my jaw line.. that's just something else - I thought there wasn't much I could do about it and grudgingly accepted it as part of getting older, but this took at least a year or so from the jaw line slack. I certainly look forward to seeing my jaw line tightening more in the coming months.
That said, I do offer some advice and warning. It's so easy to overuse this. I noticed my eyelids get slack if I overused this on that area. This would go away if I lay off the CP's on my eyelids for a couple of days and used some DMAE. I use the serum - 2 drops diluted in a small quarter-sized puddle of distilled water in my palm. That would go on my face and neck. I started this once every 2-3 days, then every other day.. now working my way to 2 days on CP's 1 day off. Every morning after using the CP at night, I would use either exfol cream (2% BHA's) or use those microdermabrasion creams to physically exfoliate. I can't emphasize enough how important it is to exfoliate when using CP's and how important it is to not overuse this product.
I realize from reading the reviews this isn't for everyone, but the website provides sample sizes for an affordable price, so I recommend trying this out first before commiting to full-sized products. It seems to be a miracle product for some and not others.

This stuff works so well for me. I use it every other night as a treatment/moisturizer and it really helps with acne and scars. My skin is combo, so this may not be moisturizing enough for drier skin types, but for me, it's fine. It leaves a slight bluish/green tint to my skin (I have olive/yellow undertones). The price is reasonable too and it lasts a long time since you only need a few drops. Will definitely repurchase.

After using this for a few months, I agree with those who had unpredictable results. One day my skin would look awesome...glowing, firm, smooth...the next it would be a mess...sagging, parched, dull. So I used it every other day. Same result. Tried it using various techniques as described on their website and from other MUA users. It was just too unpredictable. My skin just doesn't like this stuff. It is also terribly hard to stay away from vit C products, since everyone seems to put it in everything. If the results had been what I was hoping for, then learning all the different forms of vit C and studying labels on all other products (including mu) would have been worth it. As it is, I'm over it.

Sorry did nothing for me runny water like with a funny smell;I think I'm going back to neutrogena active copper. I saw better results with this product.

I have no idea why I mess with perfection!!!! I am 34 and have exceptionally good skin. It is like porcelain due to my religious use of sunblock, genetics, and skin care maintenance. I got greedy! I was doing my regular skincare research to keep abreast and stumbled upon skinbiology. I was intrigued by the research and had to try. I used the product for two months but am stopping tonight in hopes that my beautiful skin will come back soon. I have already booked a microdermabrasion appointment for next week...always my saving grace when I get too experimental for my skin's own good. At first, the product seemed to control any summer oil in my T-zone. It brought all of my blackheads to the surface and some other damage that even IPL treatments have yet to bring up. So I wrote Dr. Pickart a few emails and was reassured that damage was coming up causing my skin to be unclear or blotchy. I decided to have more patience but now I am terrified that I have done permanent damage. I used it sparingly and alternated days. My skin is firmer for sure but I also have pigmentation problems. My even toned olive/porcelain skin is pinky, dry, and have dark circles and puffiness under my eyes. I have creepiness on my cheeks. Yet my forehead looks tight. This product is way too potent, unpredictable, and scary for me. I would much rather use gentle moisturizers, an 8% glycolic, sunblock and go back to my annual microdermabrasion and IPL treatments.

This is NOT a review for Skin Biology CP serum, but a cautionary post. Copper peptides will mistakenly remove HEALTHY collagen and elastin in a small percentage of people who try copper peptide products, causing skin damage that may be irreversible. One function of CP products (and those that contain alpha lipoic acid) is to remove damaged collagen. For some unknown reason this process backfires in certain people. I suffered skin DAMAGE from Neutrogena's Visibly Firm Serum, another copper peptide-containing treatment. Be careful and spot test CP products on an inconspicuous area of your body for at least a week before using them on your face. My skin seems to be recovering from the damage inflicted by copper peptides, but I'm 34 years of age. An older person might not fare as well. I would hate for this to happen to anyone else. Be safe!

I had such high hopes for this product and although it did produce a type of glow, it resulted in huge, very painful, cyst like pimples that errupted in places i have never experienced them before. I initally thought my skin just needed to adjust to the product. However, after six months with my skin only getting worse i have finally given up. The whole range really didnt do it for me.

This serum smells and felt like junk. However it does add glow, removes wrinkles and shrinks pores like it promised. You have to be very careful while using this. Use only the tiniest amount at first and when skin starts to accomadate, increase the amount or you will end up with lots of blackheads, pimples and dry skin etc..
Update. This product is very unpredictable. On somedays my skin looks nice plump and smooth and recently it started to look clogged and dry.
